This DURIP project is aimed at establishing a new Spark Plasma SinteringSPS equipment by which we will be able to process a new set of nano-structured smart materials and composites shape memory alloySMA composites, ferromagnetic SMA composites, piezo-composites with and without functionally graded microstructureFGM, a new active materials such as piezo-SMA composites. These composites will be used for higher performance airborne actuators and smart window materials and energy harvesting and cooling materials for airborne antennas.
